Rob Melotti – Editor

Born and raised in a sailing family in Bermuda, Rob learned to sail at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and Spanish Point Boat Club, finishing 3rd in the Bermuda Junior Nationals in 1989.

A former dinghy instructor at Southampton Water Activities Centre, Rob switched to marine publishing in 2004, becoming sub-editor at PBO, rising through the ranks to take over the news and feature editing role from 2007-2010.

“My windsurfer now gets used more as a paddleboard and I no longer race in the Solent, so I’m looking into powerboating options – electric engines in particular – for pottering with family and friends from Hamble or Calshot, down to Keyhaven and maybe across to the Isle of Wight.”
